Screw NBC, they clearly want Washington to win, they in love with Alex Smith, makes me sick how bias they are. Collinsworth at least, he is terrible.
Sorry, Washington is the better story out of the two.
Also they do want to be broadcasting a team making the playoffs.
So of course they are gonna want the Football Team to win
Yeah, I don't know if NBC is actively rooting for Washington, but if they were, I wouldn't necessarily blame them.
Washington has Alex Smith as their starting quarterback, and his story is one of the great comeback tales in the history of football, which the network can sell to football and non-football fans alike for a Saturday night primetime matchup against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Additionally, Washington has a stout defense with one of the best defensive lines in the game, loaded with young talent that could be headlining Pro Bowls and All-Pro teams for years to come.
The Giants, meanwhile, uh, well they're from New York, I guess, and they would have the notoriety of being the worst team in NFL history to advance to the playoffs. So I guess that could be something to promote until about five or six minutes into the first quarter of the Wild Card Game when Tampa Bay is up 14-0.
A few weeks back I said an NFL team would never openly “tank” a game, that players would have too much pride to actively try to lose. But there’s no other way to describe what the Eagles have done on both sides of the ball since Hurts was replaced by Sudfeld. They tanked the game.
